Mysticism, Role Models and enlightenment
From Leonardo da Vinci Mona Lisa to Contemporary Art Projects
Leonardo da Vinci, the Portrait of a Man in Red Chalk, painted in 1512, when Leonardo da Vinci was 60+ and living in France, in Biblioteca Reale, Turin
If you know anything about true art or mysticism, you will know that both are synonyms for a life-long research and devotion to beauty. There is no way to make a child or a lay man “mentally” appreciate a perfect glass of wine or a tea spoon of perfect honey that is from the best organic lands, since they yet do not have training and patience necessary to comprehend the complexity behind its making. This is why there is no money in true art. It is our Kings, Governments and Churches that have in the past sponsored true art praying their fame will stay with us for eternity.
